More than 3,000 gallons of beer
are consumed here daily at one bar,

Quarts are the smallest measures

gets it filled and repairs to a table
to drink his foaming ale. The beer
sells for about 11 cents a quart if
you buy it yourself, and 15 cents

Markey, at the Capitol Theatre
tonight. Betty Lawford. a young
English actress of exceptional ability,
plays opposite the star, and others
featured arc Halllweil Hobbes, Colin
Keith-Johnston and Mackenzie Ward.
Mr. Kerrigan made his stage de
but at the Abbey Theatre. Dublin,
in 1908 and played here and there
until 1917, when he came to New
York. He was for three years with
Laurettc Taylor in “Happiness,'’
then returned to London for an im
portant role in “John Ferguson.’’
He then returned to New York and
appeared prominently in the all star
cast of “The Rivals." with James
Powers. Francis Wilson. Macklyn
Arbucklc and others. He later sup
ported John Drew in “Trelawney of
the Wells," Grace George in “The
Road to Rome” and he also appeared
in “Meet the Prince." His first ap
pearance in motion pictures here was
in suoport of Marion Davies in "Little
Old New York.”
Mr. Kerrigan provides excellent
entertainment in the role of the Earl
of Balkerry's butler, In “Lucky in
Love,” Mr. Downey is seen as a stable
boy who loves the Earl's beautiful
granddaughter. Lady Mary Cardifna.
Their love romance is threatened with
disaster when the stable boy thrashes
his rival Capt. Fitzroy and to escape
arrest, flees to New York. Lady
Mary later joins him there and be
comes a clerk in the department store
where her sweetheart is employed.

Eden.” last time tonight at The Pal
ace Theatre. Mandan. has as its head
man Charles Ray. Others in the cast,
which was directed by Lewis Mile
stone. include Lowell Sherman, Louise
Dresser. Edward Martindel, Hank
Mann and Maud George. But Charles
Ray is Richard Spanyi. the head man.
Which recalls Moran's remark to
Mack. "I wuz de head man in dat
show ‘Uncle Tom's Cabin.’ ”
Mack replied. “You even hear of
The Garden of Eden?’ ”
Moran said. "Yes. suh.**
And the reply came:
“Well, you wuzn't de head man in
dat show!”
Thorosen Orderod to Clo&n Filos
of Office, According to
Acker’s Statement
Reports of district tax supervisors
which Iver Acker, state tax commis
sioner, claims are missing from his
files, were tossed Into the wastebasket
by T. H. Thoresen because they were
I of no value to the office, the tax com
missioner says Thoresen told him yes
According to Acker's statement,
Thoresen declared the reports were
not records provided by law and that
they were not a record of the office;
that he had been instructed to clean
up the files of the office of papers
that were of no value.
Acker relates that he made three
demands upon M. H. Chernick, tax
supervisor under Thoresen, for re
turn of the reports. The last request,
put in the mail August 30. was in the
form of a registered letter and as yet
no response has been forthcoming
from Chernick.
The reports in question, according
to the tax commissioner, cover daily
operations of tax supervisors over a
1 considerable period and he believes
they arc necessary to proper conduct
of the office. Mileage and other ex
pense incurred by district supervisors,
: of which there are six, are required to
; be reported daily.
1 Thoresen explained, according to
Acker, that any information contained
i in the reports of the district tax su
j pervisor could be gained from income
| tax reports which are in the commis
sioner's files.
On the other hand. Acker declares
this is quite impossible, as these rec
ords are not made up in such a man
ner as to reveal operations of the
Acker wants the reports, he says,
then he may learn the specific duties
of the district supervisors.
The tax commissioner further de
clares that Miss Gertrude Fitzgerald,
an employe in the office, protested
removal of the records.
London. Oct. I.—Barber shops
used to be great institutions of
learning. Many a discussion and
funny story has been related in
I them. But modern life has changed
this old landmark into an institution
of decorum and good behavior. Pos
sibly women have something to do
with it. Proof that barber shops are
becoming religious is the fact that
